Revel Body Sonic Vibrator - Accessories Review

I was lucky enough to be able to try the entire kit from Revel Body, thanks to the glorious Shevibe.com. Since the four extra tips, and travel case, are sold separately I wanted to talk about them separately. Accessory Tips “Sold Separately” Nico is a nipple-shaped tip that I thought would work best for me, but still didn’t – it’s a little too pinpoint and didn’t transmit as much oomph as I needed.  I thought that the decreased surface area would mean that the vibrations would concentrate more, but this somehow didn’t happen. The Nico and original tips almost feel like they have the same level of intensity, just the Nico is more pinpoint with the stimulation. The fact that it sticks out a little might make it more user-friendly for some – for others who are inclined to apply pressure and movement, this isn’t the tip for you. It’s very sensitive to being “knocked

I'm a Superhero, Apparently?

Even if I had been around enough the latter half of this year to know that this list was being curated, I still wouldn’t have “participated” in asking people to nominate me. I don’t like doing it, I’m the sort of person who doesn’t like spotlights. I detest asking for anything (oftentimes to my downfall). And also I feel that if I don’t ask, I won’t get let down in life. I suppose that attitude carries over to this stuff, too.  I never win popularity contests, because despite the fact that I bend over backwards for those I like and care about, I have a curmudgeonly (I say realistic) outlook to life in general. I also have Bitchy Resting Face. Point is, I’m hard to like. I get that. I’m not really okay with it, but….I suppose it’s a litmus test. The ones that stick around me despite the fact that I’m not always an

Heeldo Review

I’ve seen the Heeldo bopping around the industry for a few years, and was always curious. I finally got a chance to review one to see if it would work out like I thought it would. Yes. And no. Many would probably laugh at the concept, and I do laugh at the thought of donning the Heeldo to be used on someone else (gives new meaning to the eloquent term “cunt-punt”), but for masturbation it could be really great for some people. I, as you know, have troubles with thrusting a straight dildo. But I do so love my Tantus dildos and while their bases usually do a decent job of acting like a suction cup, I don’t have any surfaces in my house that are suction-cup friendly. So I thought that the Heeldo would be my ticket to improved self-fucking. Sadly, it was not meant to be for me. You really just cannot have

Dear Lelo: I Quit

There is always a proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back; This straw is named Ida.   In 2008 when I first started reviewing sex toys, I got to review a couple of Lelo toys pretty early on in my career. Back then, “luxury” vibes were not as prevalent and seemed so….posh. So fancy. So very, very different from the garish, neon dreams of CalExotics and Doc Johnson, at 5-10 times the price. And with a price tag like that, surely they’re better, right?? So I felt let down when I didn’t love my first Lelo toys. They weren’t quite powerful enough for me. But I thought it was my fault. I was the problem, not Lelo. They were trying so hard, you see.  And so, I kept making excuses–trying to be objective, and state that just because it wasn’t perfect for me, Ms. Picky Clit-o-Steel, didn’t mean they weren’t great sex toys. After all,

Lelo Gigi 2

The Lelo Gigi has been around for a long while now, since something like 2004 or 5.  But while a bunch of newer Lelo vibrators were getting their makeovers, the originals were left alone, until now. Gigi and Liv have recently been revamped with the power boost that, clearly, customers were asking for. Unlike the Mona and Ina, there is no difference in the design of the Gigi 2 vs the original. The only three differences are -  the power has been increased; it is now fully waterproof;  and it comes in an entirely new color – a nice, neutral, pale gray. I really, really like the gray. I hope that it shows up in future designs. One aspect of the Gigi that I wish had been changed is the control button “wheel”. I used to think that it was elegant and refined. At first, I didn’t like the changes to the buttons when they

The Split Dildo vs The G-Vibe (FunToys)

Months ago I reviewed the G-Vibe, a split vibrator that reminded folks of the aptly named (both for the obvious, and for how divided the fan base was) Split Dildo. I had read a number of reviews that stated that the Split Dildo was actually painful to use, so I was surprised by how boring and subtle the Funtoys G-Vibe was to use. Recently a Split Dildo became available on ToySwap and I grabbed it up for no other purpose than this comparison review. Dedicated, I am. While the Split Dildo is noticeably fatter than the G-Vibe, the biggest different is in the pliability of the silicone and the pressure  aspect – by that I mean the amount of pressure it takes to keep the closed ears split and therefore the amount of pressure they will exert as they try to fall back into their natural state. It took me awhile to figure out how
